Rimtec introduces customized
coupling solutions for semiconductor
and other specialty automation machinery
To meet the needs of the
demanding automation marketplace, Rimtec Corporation is pleased
to announce the expansion of their engineering and manufacturing
capacity to provide customized zero-backlash couplings.
now, more than ever, requires more stringent motion control standards
with compactness and cost-effectiveness being the ultimate goal.
Rimtec takes a unique approach with collet clamps, taper locks,
or special flanges with very small space requirements that can be
combined with standard or special bellows to provide customized
solutions for demanding applications. The torsional stiffness of
Rimtec's customized couplings is the highest available as positioning
accuracy is required to be measured in microns - ideal for semiconductor
or wafer inspection applications.
adaptable construction, utilizing few parts, enables the design
engineer to easily integrate a custom tailored zero-backlash servo
coupling into his or her system. Our special machine shop easily
manufactures solutions in quick turnaround times - ideal for rapid
couplings are available with bore sizes from 1mm to 100mm and torque
capacity up to 5000Nm.
Rimtec safety couplings
enhance high-speed mailroom automation
Automated, high-speed inserting, stacking, bundling and storage/retrieval
operations now may safely achieve exceptional, jam-free accuracy
by installing Rimtec Corporation's torque-limiting, pre-stressed
Rimtec safety couplings, designed with a Belleville spring, disengage
in an exceptional 2 to 4 ms in a jam situation -- before
the jam can cause expensive damage to the drive or automation equipment.
The coupling can then re-engage at the precisely correct angular
position, in just one revolution, to maintain continued mailroom
speed and accuracy.
The Rimtec couplings incorporate precision roller guides with a
broader contact surface compared to conventional ball guides. This
design provides high stiffness, even with today's fast acceleration,
and also ensures zero-backlash motion control.
Rimtec torque-limiting safety couplings are available in bore sizes
from 0.25 to 3.50 inches (six to 90 mm), with torque capacities
from 9 to 14,160 in-lb (1 to 1600 Nm).
The Rimtec Corporation offers a broad line of technically precise
servo couplings for high-end mailroom automation and other demanding
types of production to dramatically diminish downtime and improve
